We’ve both been through rough shit and sure, we don’t know your life or what you’ve been through, but we’re speaking from experiences of not exactly having had it easy ourselves.

That’s fine. You know you. Our goal above all else is just to convince you to try to make small efforts to improve your situation, whatever it may be, and to show from different angles how you might go about doing that, or how it might be possible.
